Debian Configuration :: Awstats Access To Apache Logs?

Mar 10, 2011

In a squeeze box, I installed awstats and it's working like a charm. Its cron job update the awstats database every 10 minutes (as it runs as root). But I would like to be able to update the statistics from the browser as well. So I setup everything as required and I gave "read" access to "others" to every apache log file. Now, a couple of questions came to my mind:

1. Am I compromising server's security giving "read" access to "others" to apache log files?

2. Instead of giving "read" access to "others", I could add www-data user to adm group (as apache log files are owned by root:adm and permissions are rw-r----). Is this more secure than giving "read" access to "others"? 3. If the option would be giving "read" access to "others" at the end, a log file would be owned by root:adm and its permissions be rw-r--r--. As apache rotates its log files, when Apache create a new log file, does it preserve the permissions (rw-r--r--) or create it with the default permissions (rw-r-----)?

Ubuntu Servers :: HTTP Response Into Apache Access Logs

Jul 6, 2011

I am new to web server support. I have a request from my management to modify the logging slightly. Effectively I need to redirect a custom string from our http response into the apache access logs. When a user navigates to our site they receive a "dye" number that is associated with them. This number follows them to whatever cluster they are directed too. The string is formatted as such, com-company-dye: d0a2#6dfce. I need that that header dye to appear in the access logs so we can use that dye number as a key for troubleshooting issues though out our various monitoring systems.

Ubuntu Servers :: Install The GeoIP Plugin For AWStats?

Apr 4, 2010

I'm trying to install the GeoIP plugin for AWStats. I've installed the packages geoip-database, libgeoip1, and libgeo-ip-perl. geoip-database installs the database file at /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIP.dat, so that's the path I'm using in my AWStats config file. When I try to run AWStats on my logs, it hangs without generating any files. No debug messages about this are printed when I enable them. I've also tried installing libgeo-ipfree-perl and uncommenting the geoipfree line in my conf file, but that didn't work either.

Possibly useful detail: I previously tried installing the GeoIP C library and Perl module manually, which didn't work, and then I tried installing the Pure Perl module manually, which also didn't work. I simply deleted them all, which I'm not sure was a good idea. I don't know anything about this stuff.

Fedora Servers :: Awstats From Multiple Log Files ?

Sep 11, 2010

I'm trying to set up awstats for my web server which runs ISPConfig3. Due to ISPConfig, my log-rotated files have the extension .log.gz, and the naming syntax of DATE-access.log.gz.

According to awstats documentation, I need their tool to merge the log files, however, I cannot get it to work. I always get file not found or pipe error like messages.


I took a look at permissions, log files are world-readable. Checked path's 1000 times, no typo. When I try to find out whats wrong, the problems usually begins when I try to use the * character in the LogFile variable, ..

Anyone got experience with multiple log files and awstats? ...

Ubuntu Servers :: Run Scripts When Ssh User Logs In?

Nov 6, 2010

I'm a bit of a unix noobie trying to manage a small ubuntu server. I want to run a bash script automatically after an ssh user logs in. For example, after they log in and the default welcome message is displayed, I want to run a script that displays some server statistics since the last session. I made an alias to the script, and I could run it manually after I log in, but it's a bit of a hassle. Is there any way I could do this?

Ubuntu Servers :: Windows XP Logs On To Samba PDC Instead Of BDC

Feb 3, 2011

I'm running a set of virtual machines (most in ESXi, one in VirtualBox on my desktop) to try and replicate an existing physical network structure with a Samba domain operating across multiple subnets. The layout is:

* Router - Ubuntu 8.04, running dnsmasq, bridging my 2 virtual subnets ( & and my physical network
* PDC - Ubuntu 8.04, configured as a Samba PDC with PAM configured to use LDAP, SMBLDAP etc. on
* LDAP - Ubuntu 8.04, running Zimbra 5 mail server, acting as the LDAP backend for Samba on
* BDC - Ubuntu 8.04, configured as a Samba BDC with PAM LDAP etc.
* Client1 - Windows XP, joined to domain on
* Client2 - Windows XP, joined to domain on

Watching /var/log/daemon.log, /var/log/samba/*, smbstatus -bd0 shows that Client1 successfully logs on to the BDC ( but Client2 logs on to the PDC ( instead. Both clients have the same subnet, DNS, WINS settings etc. I've seen the issue happen in our physical setup too but very infrequently and usually when there's been a network interruption between the BDC(s) and the LDAP server.

Ubuntu Servers :: Cron Is Filling Up Logs?

Sep 1, 2011

I am using my ubuntu server as my home router.Everything is working as expected with one exception.y DSL modem is a POS and every now and again it looses connection to the router. Sometimes it needs to be reset and sometimes it does not.Either way, when this happens my ubuntu server needs to reacquire an IP from my ISP. If it screws up when I'm at home it's no big deal, but if it happens when I'm not around my housemates have taken to hitting the reset switch on the server. I'm not a big fan of this so I wrote a script to ping my ISP's gateway. If it's unavailable it bounces the eth0 interface and tries to get an IP. I am running this script every couple of minutes in a cron job. Now I'm getting syslog entries like

Aug 9 20:31:01 portal CRON[9602]: (root) CMD (/opt/ChkAndFixNetwork.sh)
every few minutes. This is annoying and makes the logs useless for troubleshooting. I

Now, my /var/log/messages is getting all the firewall logs + all other logs.

Ubuntu Servers :: Send System Logs To Another User?

We have a backup program that works with HP's ultrium tapes that whenever it's failing it's sending an error to the root's system logs. Now if I run mutt as root I can see the system logs and it's very easy to pinpoint any backup error messages.
Is there any way to copy all these system messages to another user as well so that someone with no root access could run mutt as well and check for these logs daily?

Debian Configuration :: File Access Logs - Functionality Like Already Built Into Samba?

Sep 7, 2010

wants some sort of logging capability on the system. to have a log of every change to every file, although that might be a bit unwieldy. perhaps a simpler compromise would be some way of monitoring a few specific folders, and tracking all changes to them, including the user that did so. Particularly important is that it should be possible to work with access through samba, as we want to track what users on the network are creating or changing files. Is there functionality like this already built into debian or samba? is there a useful additional app to gather this information? or am I going to need to be grep'ing log files to present something useable?

CentOS 5 Server :: Stop Apache Logs (access/error/ssl) From Being Deleted?

Apr 22, 2009

I don't mind that apache logs "rotate". By that, I mean that periodically the most recent log is renamed "*.1" and the older logs are bumped up a number In my particular situation, I do mind that the log that was "*.4" is deleted rather than being renamed to "*.5" when that periodic renaming happens.

I know most of the other /var/log files have the same behavior. What does this? Can I change it so my apache logs are "rotated" up but aren't deleted? I know this will take some hard drive space, but I have a lot of it.

EDIT: CentOS 5.3, kernel 2.6.18-128.1.6.el5, Apache 2.2.3

Ubuntu Servers :: Logwatch Emails Not Sent If Named Logs Are Included?

Jun 15, 2011

I've suddenly stopped getting emails from logwatch which runs on an Ubuntu server daily using cron.After a good day or so of troubleshooting, I was able to establish that it was the 'Service = named' line in my logwatch.conf file, which was stopping the emails from coming through. If I commented out this line, the logwatch emails come through with no issues, uncomment, and I don't get an email. I don't get any error from logwatch itself when I run it, even with '--debug high', leading me to think that my email configuration is setup ok, at least. Furthermore, I tried running logwatch with '--output file --format html' and logwatch produces a valid html file.

I then thought: "Could I have a entry in my Bind/named log files which could be rejected by my ISP's smtp server?". So, (to the best of my knowledge) I cleared out the log files in /var/log that contained messages from named. I then ran logwatch (including the named service in my logwatch.conf file) and I got an email through, with a pretty much empty named section, which is exactly what I anticipated. Great! - it's fixed.

So, the cron.daily ran early this morning, but still no email in my inbox when I got up. I then tried to run 'logwatch --Range today' and lo and behold, I got a logwatch report email, which included a named section, with log entries in there. So it seems that something that's been logged by named overnight to my logfiles (i.e. '--Range yesterday') has caused issues again with logwatch's ability to send reports through my ISP's smtp servers.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04.2 Server - Intermittently Hangs With No Indication Of Cause In Logs?

Sep 1, 2011

The attached log file includes two crashes/reboots within the past day or so I have recently started trying to set up / manage a Linux (Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS) server in our data center (all other servers are Windows boxes). The server periodically hangs and becomes unresponsive and I'm at a loss to find anything in any log that indicates a specific cause. Sometimes it's up for hours, sometimes days (14 days at longest). Plugging a monitor in to the machine after a hang shows nothing at all. In an effort to troubleshoot the problem we've tried disabling APIC, more out of "educated desperation" than anything else. Unfortunately we are limited in some of the troubleshooting we can do, as we have a single client website hosted on the box (the reason we set it up) so anything that involves significant downtime is a problem.

As this is our first attempt at setting up a linux box, we are using a "well equipped" desktop grade machine but not what I would call "server grade" hardware. This is a standalone box, not a VPS. We are using a hardware, not software, RAID array and have plenty of memory in the box.

Caveats / Background:

I am relatively new to Linux in general. I spend much more time writing code than managing servers. I'm comfortable with working on the box, but I'm not really a sysadmin guy. I'm comfortable with the command line but have more experience with OS X (BSD). I am unsure of all of the tools / information / Logs that may be available, though I try to be thorough in checking what I do know. I did not physically configure the hardware so I'm not sure of all of the specs but I can get any info I need to troubleshoot. I may be skipping very basic steps or missing obvious places to look for information without knowing it.

A little more detail:

Real memory: 8GB
Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS
Hardware RAID 10
Managing sites with Webmin version 1.550

Server is in a remote data center. Hands on-troubleshooting is difficult. We have attempted two Linux setups at this point. The first was on a hardware config identical to this one, but with no actual pieces of hardware reused. That attempt was using CentOS and we were attempting to set up CPanel. We scrapped that install because of this same problem (periodic crashing / hanging). The second attempt (this one) is showing the same behavior. The only thing I can really see in common are the hardware configuration (though CentOS & Ubuntu may have more in common than I think).

The box will run fine for hours, days, or even weeks, and then just stop responding entirely. I check all of the logs I know to check (primarily messages, syslog and kern.log) but I don't see anything that seems like an error to me. I do see lines that I don't understand that may or may not be problems, such as:


rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" swVersion="4.2.0" x-pid="814" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] rsyslogd was HUPed, type 'lightweight'.

Most of our syslog entries seem to be logs of webmin related cron jobs running. My gut tells me that there is possibly some component in our configuration Linux does not like or needs a driver update (maybe the raid card for example), but I'm unsure of how to do more to track down or determine what that might be. Guess and check is expensive. Another thought I've had is that one or more of the cron jobs that are running are tripping something up, but it doesn't appear to be reproducible on demand and, again, I'm at a loss on how to test that theory any further. The same cron job does not appear to be running each time the server goes down. This is a portion the log just prior to our last hang:

Fedora Servers :: Syslog Listening On Port 514 For Both Firewall And IDS Logs?

Jan 17, 2010

Currently Im having a syslog server that consolidate firewall logs on port 514 udp. Im also having a IDS device that I wish to push its logs to this particular syslog server so that I can retrieve my IDS logs on this server as well.

Is it possible to do so?Having syslog listening on port 514 for both firewall and IDS logs? If it is possible will the logs be recorded in a single log file?Or will it be recorded in a separate log file ie. firewall.log, IDS.log etc?? I wish to have them in separate individual log files or else there will be hard time segregating the log entries in a single file. Can anyone advice on how to achieve this??

Ubuntu Servers :: Webdav Access - When Connect From Nautilus - Says - Access Was Denied

Mar 26, 2010

I'm having a problem with my webdav share. I have a secure webdav folder that gets accessed via a non-standard port and requires basic authentication. I can connect and interact with it fine via cadaver. However, when I try to connect from nautilus, it says "Access was denied." To make it even stranger, sometimes I can click on the folder in nautilus (it still mounts) and access it. Sometimes not (just repeats the error message and won't show me the contents). I may not even un-mount it, but just look at other folder, then click it again and be able to access it, but again - only rarely.

I asked a friend to try connecting from his windows vista computer and it would not work. It would not work from my windows XP virtual computer either. However, it mounts and works just find from my work computer (also Windows XP).

So it seems to be a 50/50 chance that the drive will mount on any given computer/system and work. Do anyone know what the problem may be? I'm guessing user permissions, but I can't figure out what.

I've made sure the webdav folder is owned by www-data and www-data has read access to the password file as well.

When I try connecting from nautilus, I get this in the log file:

Server :: Awstats And Log File Of 270MB?

Any suggestion? I tried updating awstats but it's timing out and I'm getting an internal server error which I assume is from the 270MB access_log size.
